Pet Care Questions
Pets age at different rates according to the size and breed of your pet. Visit our Life Stage Wellness page for more information about senior pets. What does this mean for them? They may have special needs that require extra attention and possibly more frequent veterinary visits. Mostly they need extra TLC for their "golden years."
Any changes in appetite, water intake, bathroom habits, or weight changes are issues that should be discussed and examined further. These are only a few and we invite you to contact us if you have any questions about your pet’s health.
Read no further and call us right away! If you are experiencing concerns after hours, contact BluePearl OKC Emergency.
Our animal hospital is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm. The hospital is closed Saturday, Sunday and major holidays.
Appointments are our preferred method of scheduling. Walk-ins are welcome and will be seen as soon as possible. All patients will be seen in this order: Emergencies, appointments, walk-ins.
Payment is expected at time of services. We accept cash, credit, debit and some third party payment plans. In order to focus on each patient’s needs, customer service, and minimizing costs, we do not bill.
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 5-6 months of age. Your pet is given a physical exam prior to surgery to help determine whether they are healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is required prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.
This is a blood test that is run in the clinic or sent to a local veterinary laboratory prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood counts, and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to ensure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.
No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having your pet spayed or neutered. For females, the advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors, cystic ovaries, and uterine infections. For males, neutering decreases the desire to roam the neighborhood and the incidence of prostate cancer, and it helps prevent spraying and marking. Spaying and neutering also help control the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.
No, we do not offer boarding. We believe that our hospitalized patients are better cared for if the staff is not distracted by boarding animals. Contact us and we can make recommendations for boarding in our area.
No, we do not offer grooming. Again, our philosophy is to give the best care to our hospitalized patients. Contact us and we can make recommendations for grooming in our area.
Great people from Vet to staff. They are very caring for our pets but us as well.
Animal East is always able to schedule us quickly and truly cares about our dogs. Thank you!
Doctor Rex and all of the staff are always friendly, informative and take excellent care of my dogs!
As always, I was welcomed as soon as walked in as the staff is always the best. So friendly and happy. The time and care that we receive from Dr Johnson and his staff is incredible. Never rushed always answers all of my questions. When I leave, I always feel so much more assured that my animals have had the best care by all of the staff and Dr Johnson and Dr Vasquez.
Dr.'s Johnson and Vasquez and all the staff are great and they form solid relationships with our dogs.
Great customer service, right away felt like they wanted to take the best care of our dogs.
Very friendly and helpful staff/docs. And they follow-up after care to check on our dogs. Really pleasant experience!
Everyone is really kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and the costs are reasonable.
The staff at Edmond East is always kind and understanding. They worked with my evolving schedule to get my dog in and spent time on the phone and in person talking to me about the situation and expectations.
Friendly and loving staff, gentle and kind with our dog, and we know they have our pets best interest in mind always!
